I’m actually buckling down and making some real progress on my live material now, rather the fits and starts I had before. I have a clear plan this time, and I’m already putting it into action. I’m even fixing little bits along the way, mostly little things about old songs that have bothered me in the past (“Shirt” being a prime offender).
Why the sudden activity? Well, I think I may be playing my debut show sometime soon. Nothing firm, but possibilities have been tossed around. As soon as there’s a definite date, I’ll let you all know, but until then you can live in anticipation.
New material progressing as well. I think my future release plans are coalescing into something solid and attainable. For the moment, I’m thinking of my current material in progress as three separate “groups” of various sizes. I’m not saying for sure yet, but I’m thinking single, EP, and…LP? Too soon to tell. Expect at least one of the above this year.
PS…some great electronic music blogging happening in various places these days. Check out Sea of Hands for the Pacific Northwest scene, a great write-up on live show prep from Create Digital Music, another starter’s guide from Live PA, and a new blog for other gluttons for tracker punishment like me, Buzz Update. Lots of good info out there these days…
